crowley, radio talk show host, doug cone, former advisor to president bill clinton. morning to both of you. what do you think about what senator rubio said about the president and second amendment. >> there is lot of wariness and caution on the republican side. they are worried this may be the beginning of a fall on assault on the second amendment. i think senator rubio is correct in his heart the president is not a big fan of the second amendment, never has been. you will recall, bill, president obama's first chief of staff, rahm emanuel once said, never let a crisis go to waste. newtown and aurora, certainly were crises. and i think they're being leveraged by this white house to at least begin an assault on the second amendment. essentially what the president did was sign these 23 executive actions yesterday and pass it off to congress, the outstanding question of of course is hough much this can actually get through congress. bill: you're right about that. come back to the original, question, doug. what do you think about the second amendment? >> i think the president made it very clear

republicans are playing catch-up. let's go back to the contract with america with newt gingrich and bill clinton. the party was unified behind the message. today we're all over the place. colin powell is right to certain extent that the republican party has an identity crisis. jon: if you have one person tasked with delivering the message, wouldn't that be impetus to come up with unified cohesive message? >> there is just not one person delivering the message. you have the white house press secretary. when you get down to it, the dnc does social network. they tweet. they do facebook. everything out there reaching out to young people. the grand old party is a little bit old. we need to come into where we embrace technology. jon: henninger made that point but said at least the gop in his view should adopt what he called, 20th century technology and come up with sort of the same thing as a white house spokesperson? >> the grand old party is a big tent party and it is a party inclusive of all. we have the log cabin republicans. we have pro-choice republicans we have moderate republicans. we

, a muslim, or the ability for like the bill clinton did, to break through and say i was born in hawaii. >> he is a different kind of president than we've ever seen. he's an african-american man, to start with. he's also a little bit more academic. he's one of those people that sort of internalizes and processes things before he comes out and states his policy. very different from president bush and clinton who were about nicknames and joked around a little bit, and more overt. and a man who has written two books about his life and vetted through two presidential campaigns and tucker working on campaigns, we go to great lengths to try to dig up any dirt we can, so i think there's much dirt to be found, but i will say things like trump and donald trump and others who come forward and try to create questions, do create a buzz in the media which does impact public opinion. maybe we have a little other manti te'o scandal on our hands, a dead girlfriend and find out about-- >> there was a composite girlfriend in the biography-- >> and people have questions about background and early life and

for these 19 things? >> you know, i worked as you know for president clinton and democrats have a kind of ancestral memory of when they passed the assault weapons ban and the brady bill and the tremendous political price that democrats in congress paid. i think probably in addition to the substance of it, one of the things the white house wants to do is to begin to break the idea that the nra has such omniscient complete power over government, make the progress he can make and that will actually help in the legislative fights, not drain away the energy. >> the nra is seen as all powerful in so many ways. we have a really great report on that in just a moment. let me just ask one more question. it still seems to me aside from all the new things you can do, we can discuss what those are, and the nuances of it, there is this issue with the fact there are a lot of laws on the book which are not enforced. so it obviously isn't that -- isn't as easy as the president says, enforce them, or is it? >> i think that's absolutely right. there are many gun laws on the books. the problem is that in

to put that tent with clinton. if you were getting hurricanes' every five or six years he would get a bill to there. the storm system in the 30's of any magnitude it made perfect sense when you get it. we're not going to rebuild that the way. so from the science perspective here is my asked. who is making the decisions about where we build, how we build, and building codes. if you're not familiar with the devastates and will take this to the federal government, no. this is that decisions are made every day where risk exposure occurs. on the day-to-day transactional basis you probably don't really see this, but this is where decisions are made about where we will kick -- where we build, how we build, the types of building codes we're going to enforce, yet many of these officials under tremendous pressure generate revenue. how the local officials to their revenue is jobs and growth. have you ever seen anyone running for office seminar committee to give small? it's always jobs and growth. that is the mantra. yet they're having to make decisions that oftentimes are short-term, very limi
